Rochester's range, the beauty of some of his poems, their psychological acuity. His account of fear and the self-sustaining paradoxes of mutual fear, including the fear of being thought fearful. Dr. Johnson's quotation of his bon mot: "All men would be cowards if they durst." Obscenity of "The Imperfect Enjoyment" but even there Rochester's surprising acknowledgment of women's experience. Definitely not safe for work!
